    The event reported upon here took place on 16 June 1925.

    "one of the aeroplanes taxiing" - it's a Fiat B.R.1, (as are the other 3 planes).

    "M/S of them posing together in front of the aeroplane" - amongst the Italians seen are Captain Francesco Brack-Papa, Captain Arturo Ferrarin, and the Italian Air Attache Major Silvio Scaroni.
